The other ingredients are: 
lactose monohydrate, microcrystalline cellulose, gelatinized starch, magnesium stearate. 

TUSSAL Action:
Active metabolite of bromhexine with mucolytic and secretolytic activity. It stimulates the maturation and release of vesicular and bronchial surfactant, increases the production of serous bronchial secretion, reduces viscosity of mucus, increases the motility of respiratory epithelial cilia. This makes it easier to expel, accelerate bronchial clearance with secretions, reduce the intensity and frequency of cough reflex. After oral administration, it is rapidly and almost completely absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. The action starts after about 30 minutes and lasts for several hours. It is excreted in the urine as metabolites.

TUSSAL Interactions:
Co-administration of coughs may reduce the secretion of mucus by inhibiting cough reflex and cause secretion of secretions (no co-administration is recommended). Ambroxol given with some antibiotics (amoxicillin, erythromycin, ampicillin, Doxycycline and cefuroxime) increase their penetration into the lungs and enhance their effect. Ambroxol and theophylline mutually enhance one's action.
